Summary
The American Civil War tore at the very roots of our nation and destroyed most of a generation. To truly understand the madness and despair of such a horrendous conflict one needs to pick a moment. Or see that war through one family's eyes. In rural Arkansas, such was the Hancocks. Devastated by a cruel war, they faced down their personal hells and in spite of it all survived. Their survival is a testament to the power of love...and the American spirit. This is their story. And ours
Summary
An Arkansas pioneer family journeys from devastation to rebirth in the years after the American Civil War, a period marked by the destruction of a family home, self-reinvention, guilt-induced tyranny and explorations into mysticism and mental illness
